Any thoughs on the hydraulic fluid spec and tank location?
My hydraulic fluid calls for 5W motor oil, 5W hydraulic fluid, or Dextron transmission fluid, but they shouldn't be mixed
. I had to check the color to determine I had the Dextron (red) fluid. So that's what I've added. My unit is called a RAM 100 Hydraulic Leveler by Carefree of Colorado. The control panel has one light for each of the 4 stabilizers, a rotating dial switch to select which stabilizer I am activating/retracting, and a single toggle switch to either extend or retract whichever jack I've chosen with the dial switch. It also has a key to turn the system on and off. If you discover you have that system, I have all the manuals I could scan and send you by PM. By the way, my reservoir is located just behind the front bumper. I actually have to go outside the coach and reach between the grill and the bumper to remove the fill dip stick, and to add fluid. It looks like a tank laid sideways with a dip stick at one end on the top side, sort of like the oil stick on a push type lawn mower. Hope this helps some.
